La nebulosa Testa di Cavallo

The Euclid Space Telescope has sent back the first photos: they are very high-resolution images of the cosmos.
Never before has a telescope, space or ground-based, been able to create such sharp astronomical images over such a large area of sky and look so far into the distant Universe.

The University of Genoa is participating in the Euclid Consortium with a group of faculty, students, and alumni, who are working both in detector-related activities and in activities to measure the cosmological parameters that will be obtained from Euclid data.

More details on, the University magazine.
